Classics Club

There is a new challenge at the Classics Club where you pick twenty books, then a random number will be selected and each of us must read the number listed at X number by April 1st 2013.

Of course, the book selection must challenge you. My challenge is that I own almost every one of these books so I must read them to clear my TBR shelf. I have been having problems controlling the propagation of my book shelves. I need to read more books before I buy more.

I’ll update this post next Monday to announce which book I will read.

  1. The Warden by Anthony Trollope
  2. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce
  3. Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie
  4. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte
  5. Bleak House by Charles Dickens
  6. William-an Englishman by Cicely Hamilton
  7. Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell
  8. On the Road by Jack Kerouac
  9. North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
  10. Don Quixote by Cervantes
  11. Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
  12. Nicholas Nickelby by Charles Dickens
  13. A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett
  14. Walden by Henry David Thoreau
